Major Changes to Copyright On the Way!

Major Changes to Copyright On the Way! | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

The Intellectual Property Office (IPO) has published the government's intentions for 'modernising copyright' in a document, aptly called Modernising Copyright. It details many changes including some to the fundamental Education Exceptions to Copyright which are to be enacted through secondary legislation by October 2013.

 

Format shifting - moving data from one platform/device to another for personal or study purposes will be permitted.

Copyright Exceptions for education will be 'media neutral' - they will encompass all media - films, music, etc - not just text-based media.

Teachers will be permitted to use materials within the Exceptions for teaching to 'illustrate' their teaching.

The Exceptions will cover VLEs and institutionally managed authenticated services.

There are a number of new measures to assist archives and libraries perform their work of supporting learning and teaching in the digital age.

Further measures to support 'Disability' are also being introduced.

Collaboration Challenges

Collaboration Challenges | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

Collaboration, like empathy, is something we hear about more and more as a general abstract good, and yet are given so little by way of the how. 

 

Collaboration ... rests on the faith that, in addition to a solution that works for all involved being possible, it is also potentially better.

 

What happens as a result is that we try to collaborate without knowing how, or we don’t even try because we are too consumed with fear, overwhelm, or outright judgment.
